sun

In astrology, Saturn represents restriction, structure, discipline, sense of duty and older people. Wherever Saturn will be placed in one’s chart, there will be restrain, coldness and a sense of too much seriousness. When positively affected, Saturn will give tremendous power and endurance to the individual, making him/her capable to overcome huge obstacles.

Saturn is also considered the “karma master”, which means that, in a natal chart, it is the focal point form which we should interpret the native experience on this life cycle. Saturn placement in house and sign gives information about the karmic lesson one has to learn in this life and what type of karmic baggage is he/she carrying. As always with astrology, when we refer to “karma”, we don’t refer to something set in stone, but rather to some potential area that can or cannot manifest in the current context of native’s life.

In a native chart, Saturn brings the “glue”, or the substance that makes things stick. The house in which Saturn will be placed will always be perceived as solid and powerful, although sometimes cold and unfriendly. It’s because Saturn is here to show where and how we must learn in order to evolve.

On a more general level, Saturn also rules teaching, and is considered “the teacher” of the zodiac. What needs to be retained from this is that, even if the influence of Saturn may be felt as temporary pain, its long term effects are for good. Saturn gives wisdom, balance and structure.

Saturn rules the signs of Capricorn.
